Move Super Princess Peach information to Chomp[edit]

So the large Chain Chomps from SPP are called Big Chain Chomps, even though they have no chain. Chain Chomps that are oversized and have no chain are known as Chomps. This is nothing more than an error and if you look at its japanese name you can see that Chomp Shark had the exact same error.

A similar discussion is over here, but in regards to the Chomp / Chain Chomp difference - there are instances where "Chain Chomps" are known as "Chomps" (ex. Super Mario RPG, Paper Mario) and instances where "Chomps" are known as "Chain Chomps" (ex. Super Mario Maker), and some languages such as Japanese don't change between the two, so it's possible that the distinction isn't as tight as we've made it out to be. Size is also something that differs depending on the game; for example, the Chain Chomps of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine are fairly large, yet the respective games consider them to be normal Chain Chomps.

The fairly large Chain Chomps from SM64 and SMS are described as normal ones, but there aren't even smaller ones to compare them to. However there are Chain Chomps in SPP that are smaller than the Big Chain Chomp, so they are counted as oversized in this game, but they look like Chomps.

The Big Chain Chomp from Super Princess Peach is still clearly named in relation to the game's standard Chain Chomp, so if anything, that is further evidence that the line between what we consider Chomps and Chain Chomps is thin. Besides, would it not make more sense to split it into a "Big Chain Chomp (Super Princess Peach)" article? LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:34, 17 July 2018 (EDT)
Yeah, I think the Big Chain Chomp (Super Princess Peach) article would be the best thing we could do. I'll make a proposal some time or you can do it yourself if you want. MLSSBMTashrooba.pngVOIDTHIS (talk)MLSSBMShroobRex.png 18:37, 17 July 2018 (CEST)
The thing is that the other discussion is about merging it with Shark Chomp (Shark Chomp has fairly different behavior, but the behavior of unchained Chomps in general has never been consistent), so the proposal should probably have multiple options to address both, though I agree that if unchained Chomps and Chain Chomps are to remain separate, then it stands out if the Super Princess Peach Big Chain Chomp shares the same space as the others.

Do what the above section header indicates and merge to Chomp Shark[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

merge 5-0

See above. "Biggu" in the context of this franchise is almost exclusively used for large enemies and bosses in the Yoshi games. And while it doesn't act really like Chomp Shark, it is worth noting that Blindfold Boo also doesn't act like its SMW2 originator; in fact, that acts like Chomp Shark! Anyways, aside from JP name, these have similar nonstandard eye position, are of the chainless "Chomp" variety, and their position in the glossary does not indicate that in considers it a "new" enemy (those being Walruss and the Starfish). It's certainly not the same thing as what it's merged with now, at any rate.

  1. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) Per above
  2. Power Flotzo (talk) Per Doc.
  3. Niiue (talk) Per proposal.
  4. LinkTheLefty (talk) It's only logical to distinguish the big varieties this way given that Chain Chomps will remain split based on chain status. Per this and all previous support.
  5. Doomhiker (talk) Per all.
